Turkey killings trigger Kurdish protest

Clashes erupt between police and Kurds over killing of 12 members of outlawed group.


    In Turkey, violent clashes between ethnic Kurdish protesters and police erupted on Monday over the killing of at least 12 members of the Kurdistan Worker's party (PKK) by the country's security forces.

    The clashes in the eastern Turkish city of Dogubayazit came after the PKK rebels were killed while trying to cross into northern Iraq. Thousands of other pro-PKK protesters also turned out in the southern city of Diyarbakir.
